Artwork Appreciation
LIN Ru-Dao’s works focus on realistic aspects of everyday scenery in order to reflect upon the restrictions imposed on the modern individuals as well as their blind spots. The Mirror of the Sea 03: No Nukes depicts a sky with strange colors as well as a cold, barren forest with withered branches that have been dominated by a dome-shaped patch in the background. This construction appears like a nuclear power plant or a captured moment of nuclear explosion. Steaming seawater pouring from the station is flowing towards the viewer, while a figure stands stiffly at the right of the composition, witnessing the ghastly scene unfolding before him. LIN Ru-Dao has created a natural co-existence of humans, trees, and buildings, with nuclear power shrouding the entire composition like a deadly and terrifying shadow. By depicting ecological sceneries, LIN Ru-Dao expresses his position on the development of nuclear power.
